Crab meat: Today’s the day, folks
|Go ahead and be crabby today|
Go ahead and take your lumps — as long as its lump crab. March 9 is official National Crab Meat Day, which is reason enough to go out and order something with crab meat as an ingredient.
Among the dishes that come to mind: Crab cake sliders or crab macaroni-and-cheese at Jack Gage American Tavern. Hamburger Mary’s sells a crab cake slider too, although it’s not as great as the restaurant’s pot roast variety. There are also great unadorned crab cakes in the city: Pierpont’s, The Bristol Seafood Grill, McCormick & Schmick’s, and those decadent lobster-and-crab cakes at the Capital Grille.
